CRIME AND VIOLENCE, one of the fallouts from the COVID-19 pandemic, is still a major concern for the Junior Chamber International (JCI).

As such, president Gillian Greenidge is calling for people to join the organisation to help improve the lives of others.

“More now than ever we need people to join organisations such as ours, especially since we weren’t able to be face to face due to COVID. Sometimes being online can be very impersonal. Some people are even suffering from mental illness, so we have decided to set up webinars so people can talk and encourage one another. Together we will be able to work together and push each other on,” she said.

JCI currently has a membership of 36, and while they are generally aged 18 to 40 years, the president said any interested person could join. (RA)
